Well, we had a rollicking good time at the Chili WInter Warm-Up at the Danbury Ice Arena on Sunday. Danbury area newspapers reported that between1500 to 2000 people attended the event: NEWS-TIMES: Chili recipes pack surprises
I got underway at 1:00pm and kept the music upbeat throughout my 90-minute set. Since proceeds from the event went to a variety of charitable organizations in the city of Danbury (including the Danbury Westerners), I played ALL of my Danbury-inspired songs. These included the popular Danbury Fair which reached a milestone of 12,000 views on YouTube last week as well as The Danbury Westerners Theme and Drivin' At The Racearena. Westy, the mascot of the Danbury Westerners did a nice dance routine while I played their theme song and premiered my new musical instrument - a kazoo! My new song about the Danbury Racearena was also well received. All in all, it was a fun afternoon!
A BIG thanks goes out to Carol, Stephanie, Bob and Joe who were all a big help to me throughout the day.
I've posted some photos from the event for you to enjoy on the Photos page.
I may be posting some video from the event as well, so stop back in a day or two...
My next gig will be at Rosy Tomorrows in Danbury, CT on March 11th. Details are on the Performances page.
Until next time...
